        It is a pity though that, while you gallantly expose the motes in the eyes of British transgressors, you rarely mention the planks in the eyes of our European masters. A bit like a choir boy complaining about the scalding treatment he gets from the choirmaster while being repeatedly buggered and physically abused by the Bishop. Maybe you should put some thought into addressing this so it will get the far better coverage it merits.

            Well and truly stuffed?

            BTW, £53M per day = £23,564,922.57 down the toilet so far today.
            £182,564,922.57 so far this month.
            £11,471,564,922.57 (£11.5billion) so far this year.

            These are figures I like to think about when Cameron says, “we’re all in this together” or “we can’t afford tax cuts”.

      Not a bad week? FFS! Where have you got your head stuck up? (I will give you the let-out that you are employing irony.)

      John Doe winning against Northcliffe Media is one of the biggest victories of modern times!

      I would rather have seen that happen (which I did) than have had a seat in the Royal Box for every day of the Olympic Games.

      Guido had an instrumental part in procuring this and you surely cannot realise what importance it held for every one of us, not to mention every other independent thinking person in the world.

          I have no means of knowing whether your observation is true or not and frankly it doesn’t matter.

          What does matter is having freedom of speech upheld (with über-tightly defined grounds for when it should be overruled – falsely shouting fire in a crowded theatre is the classic case).

          One of the problems with freedoms is that we come to take them for granted. We, as a country, did that in the approach to WW2 and it took an exceptional man to lead us out of it. It is only when those freedoms are threatened, do some people wake up and smell the coffee. By then it can be too late.

          • I can see the point you are making but it does not pass the test of equivalency IMHO.

            To put it crudely (unusual for me, I know), I hold that I have a right of privacy to go into my toilet and have a Tom tit without television cameras beaming it around the world.

            Now, suppose I live in the middle of London, opposite a main attraction. Before my constitutional, I take sledge hammer in with me and knock out the entire front wall of the bathroom so it is exposed to the masses (assume the building does not collapse!) I then perform. Have I not lost my right to privacy?

            Conversely, if I want to publish something to a selected group of people. Don’t I have the right to do that? Of course, one of those might copy and redistribute it. But that is another matter. I do not see a freedom of speech problem arising in your example. Sorry.

            I would like to remind people of what “Freedom of Expression” is all about. It appears that the Press are ‘only screaming out about their ‘Freedom of the Press’ and many are confusing issues.

            “Freedom of Expression” is for every man and woman [i.e. those not aligned to the press or a political party]

            The Universal Declaration on Human Rights Article 19 states:

            “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers”

            The problem ‘nowadays’ is that – it does not suit the Media Moguls, Politicians and their friends – in fact that is why they are trying to slowly repeal Article 19. They thus regain their elitist power of opprssion over the people. The people have become the most powerful – And the Power-crazed do not like it one bit.

            Sadly though AI USA are promoting many rock stars who are ‘up in arms’ at the treatment in the Russian courts of the pussy girls. The notable not mouth almighty of Maddonna is included.

            But hey What’s Putin going to do about it all – send these girls to prison for 7 years for daring to speak out against him? Putin should read a bit of Voltaire.

    CIF News

    Dunno if anything is known about Ellie Mae something or other. She seems to have been handed the CIF equivalent of shelling peas or Baby Candy larceny: a piece reminding CIF readers that the Mail didn’t exactly secure a distinction in it’s Diversity GCSE (edexcel); a walk in the park one might suppose. Seems either she wasn’t up to snuff, or there’s a ‘Guardianista Spring’ in the offing; majority of posts didn’t seem to thing the G was in any position to be assuming any high moral stepladders…”at least the Mail knows its readers” seemed to be a common theme.

    I’m sure the recent calls for a rethink on North Korea didn’t help nor their recent series which featured a team of prominent ‘public intellectuals’ patiently outlining that anything but unconditional adoration of the religion of peace was de facto racism, but even so, fucking up a routine piece of Mail bashing shouldn’t have proved quite such a hurdle. Who is she? A Rushbridger niece or cousin…or another one of those Laurie Penny / Johnny Marble ex public school neo-prole anarchy-fuckups? Either way, this must go down as an eye off the ball moment…thank Allah team GB have retained a bit more focus.
